Mountain Biking for Roadies

It seems odd that a good number of roadies are a bit hesitant to try out mountain biking. Talking to Toots a week ago, he said that they're scared of the technical sections of the trail. According to him, road biking doesn't require that much bike handling skills compared to mountain biking.

As part of our demystification process, we're doing a Mountain Biking for Roadies trail ride tomorrow morning at Licao Licao. The place is perfect for them to try out their off-road steeds that are gathering dust in their garages - lots of singletrack without technical climbs and descents. They can familiarize themselves to their suspension and gears.

I just hope the weather cooperates. It's been raining everyday the whole week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

If you're interested in joining, meeting place is at the Shell Station next to Ever in Commonwealth Avenue at 7:00 a.m. We then drive to the trailhead and gear up there.
